in washington today. a little bit of news that came from an unexpected source. bob woodward got his hands on an audio recording of the top commanding general in afghanistan meeting off the record with a fox news analyst. the meeting took place last spring. it was general david petraeus who was at the time commander of all u.s. forces in the war in afghanistan. and on the tape, fox news analyst says that she was asked by her boss, by the chairman of fox news to pass along some very specific advice for general petraeus. >> if you're offered chairman, take it. if you're offered anything else, don't take it. resign in six months and run for president. okay? and i know you're not running for president, but at some point when you go to new york next, you may want to just chat with roger. i just say what i have suggested and that we've discussed is next time you go to new york you're going to stop by and see him? >> yeah. i'd be happy. i haven't seen him in awhile. he's a brilliant guy. >> he's simply brilliant. >> he is. tell him if i ever ran, but i won't. but if i ever ran, i'd take him up on
up. best new thing. for real. [ male announcer ] this is bob, a regular guy with an irregular heartbeat. the usual, bob? not today. [ male announcer ] bob has afib: atrial fibrillation not caused by a heart valve problem, a condition that puts him at greater risk for a stroke. [ gps ] turn left. i don't think so. [ male announcer ] for years, bob took warfarin, and made a monthly trip to the clinic to get his blood tested. but not anymore. bob's doctor recommended a different option: once-a-day xarelto®. xarelto® is the first and only once-a-day prescription blood thinner for patients with afib not caused by a heart valve problem, that doesn't require routine blood monitoring. like warfarin, xarelto® is proven effective to reduce the risk of an afib-related stroke. there is limited data on how these drugs compare when warfarin is well managed. no routine blood monitoring means bob can spend his extra time however he likes. new zealand! xarelto® is just one pill a day, taken with the evening meal. and with no dietary restrictions, bob can eat the healthy foods he likes. do
obama already did once with bob gates. calling it the bizarre tradition of sorts where democratic presidents suddenly act like republicans are right, that only they, republicans, can run our national security affairs. so there is general criticism from the left that democrats should stop bolstering the myth that republicans are stronger on defense because they're republicans, and therefore, only republicans should run defense even when a democrat is president. but there is also this one very specific criticism of chuck hagel individually. it's not a general criticism. it's about his record. back when it was mr. hagel who had the power to confirm presidential nominees or deny them, back when he was a united states senator, mr. hagel stood in opposition to president clinton's nominee to be the ambassador to luxembourg, a man named james hormel. senator hagel explained at the time that he was oppose odd to the nomination because mr. hormel was guy. he said to his hometown paper that ambassadors, quote are, representing america. they're representing our lifestyle, our values, our stan

, many years ago. joining us now is bob herbert. he's a dwishtd senior fellow at dmos and he's a contributor at policyshop.net. bob, it's great to see you. >> hi, rachel, how are you doing? >> good. what do you expect tomorrow? >> not much. i think that the nra has spent the last several days deep in public relations mode. i do think that they're worried that their brand has really been damaged. i think they've been thrown by the tremendous outrage in the country since newtown. i mean, this has been an extraordinary outpouring of grief but also outrage at what has happened. and so they seem to feel that they have to respond. but the whole raison d'etre of the nra and the gun manufacturers who are their allies is to get as many guns into as many hands as possible, and it would just -- not just surprise me, i mean, it would shock me if they did anything that would be counter to that. so i don't expect them to say or propose anything significant in terms of gun control. >> you know, i went back and looked at transcripts of nra officials doing public appearances, press appearance

not be in session next month, although they are pressing for her. particularly bob corker said today not very subtly in fact that he would not be moving ahead on the nomination of her successor expected to be john kerry, the chairman of the foreign relations committee, until they've had a chance to hear from her. she and her staff have simply said to the committee chairs that she needs more time. and in fact tonight we learn that she will not be traveling. that her doctors do not want her to get on an airplane for any extended travel until at least mid-january. so this is a very difficult pace for someone who is used to being nonstop. on benghazi, the hearings will be held tomorrow. i think that certainly on the senate side they will be polite. two top officials, the two top deputies are going to be testifying. but this has been a devastating report there is no way to sugarcoat it. it basically said there is systemic fault in the state department. and it goes all the way back at least until 1998, that the improvements that had been ordered in 1998 after the embassy bombings in kenya and tanzania hav
